    The Future of Product Scorecards for Retailers and Suppliers

    Retailers are ramping up their efforts to stock the shelves with products that demonstrate a reduced environmental impact. Many are using proprietary scorecarding systems that consider multiple attributes of a product, its packaging and, in some cases, its manufacturer, in evaluating claims or assessing grades or scores to products. Such systems can vary from retailer to retailer, creating a bewildering set of requirements for manufacturers of consumer packaged goods.

    Bridging the Buyer-Supplier Sustainability Gap: How to Translate Leadership Into Market Advantage

    A vast language gap exists between buyers and sellers of sustainable products. Buyers often still think of greener products in terms of single attributes — individual features like “recycled” or “organic.” Meanwhile, a growing number of manufacturers and retailers are thinking more holistically, using multi-attribute label and certification systems. This buyer-supplier sustainability gap means that companies that invest in sustainability initiatives can struggle to transform that leadership into market advantage.
